I have a story to tell, I have a book to write, I feel it in my heart, I try to be inspired, it's just not there.
I am trying to get this book going, about my kidney donation, it's such a great story to tell, but I can not zone in on the direction, I am highly intimidated and the words just won't flow. I keep trying. I started writing the book a while ago; had gotten fairly far when my computer crashed and I lost it all. I lost my mojo when my computer crashed! I've been trying to get it back. I keep wanting to write while it's fresh and surgery was already over a year ago. Time. Is. Ticking! Someone, anyone, give me the motivation I need! Anyone have online resources or tips for writing nonfiction? Help!
Help me now, and I will give you a free book when it is FINALLY published! :)


  1. I don't know of any resources, but I do have a little advice. Write from your heart. Just sit down and start writing. Write like you are telling your story to a friend. I think once you get started, it will get easier. Remember it doesn't have to be perfect the first time, just get it out, then go back and edit!

  2. Mel, over at Stirrup Queens, has written a great series on writing a book.... including getting agents before you even start the process who in turn help to guide and motivate you. I would definitely start by checking that out... I've got all the posts bookmarked for the day I decide I'm ready to write MY book! ;)


I love to hear what you have to say! Please feel free to post your thoughts!
